The Country Saga is the sister series to The Dwellers. So far these 6 books have created a spectacular world that I was glad I found.
This one I kept short and simple because I really couldn’t put my words together to express my feelings.
A must read!
Of all of David books this has got to be one of my favorites. From the very beginning I was captivated. The world he created somewhat similar to that of the Dwellers Saga yet so different. The characters were well written. There was so many emotions with every page I turned. Estes’ descriptive writing was just amazing. And the slang writing he created was BLAZIN’!
I completely loved this book just as much as all the others David has written. I read Ice Country as slow as I possibly could because I ran out of his books 😦
Ice Country was filled with non-stop action, pain and yes love! When the story begins you are thrown into a completely different world than that of Fire Country. Where Fire Country is HOT, Ice Country is COLD! The people in Ice Country seem more educated but in the end they are all just trying to survive. The Heaters from the elders and the Icers from the King; both who have lied and really don’t care about anyone but themselves. And just when I thought it couldn’t get any better the two worlds collide and nicely so!
I have never been great with reviews but I can tell you that this series along with all of Estes’ other books are so worth your time, this book was full of heart-pounding action, adventure, love, sorrow, hate every emotion rolled into one AMAZING book!
Water & Storm Country starts with a young girl Sadie, who idolizes her mother in every way. Sadie is a Stormer. She is a girl who has a strong personality, but at the same time is misguided with grief. In certain situations I feared she would lose it. She was cold to her father but again this all due to not really knowing things and because she is stubborn not really wanting to know until it was too late. And even having qualities that make you not like her, she grows on you as she grows herself throughout the story.
We are also introduced to Huck Jones, a Stormer. Huck is a kind soul. I couldn’t help but like him from the very beginning. He has lived a hard life with his evil father the admiral. Huck was also ignorant to certain things his father did and everything comes to light when he becomes a man. In his journey of self-discovery Huck meets a slave Jade (Heater). And Jade is the one that helps Huck realize the man that he “is”.
And the ending had me thinking “That’s where the stories combine!” Perfection! To be honest I couldn’t find the link between the Dweller and Country Saga until Wilde showed up towards the end giving me the link i needed to make the connection. And then it ends with Tristan and Adele…. OMG PURE AWESOMENESS!
I loved Water & Storm Country just as much as the other books in the Dweller and Country series. As in all the books I was left feeling sad knowing that soon the story of each wonderfully written character will be over. Yet I find myself delighted that I’ve been able to follow along in the journey Estes has written for us.
Patiently waiting for The Earth Dwellers!!!
